Inside Info

Things I learned yesterday about the Not So Small Bay Ferry Line:

1) When the boat from Smallish City to P. Island takes the slightly longer route around the south side of H. Island, rather than the more more direct route around the north side, it's probably because the captain and mate are planning to surf after work and want to get a better look at the swells breaking on Cape E.

2) Any time there is a mishap (such as running aground, colliding with another vessel, etc.) a number of crew may quit on the spot. This is because the next thing that happens is a visit from the Coast Guard and manadatory drug testing. Those who know they won't pass quit first, to avoid the consequences.
